Symphony No. 3: Eines Helden Träne (A Hero's Tear)
The Third Symphony is scored for full orchestra, constructed in four movements strictly following the High Classical and Romantic traditions, with a tragic and expansive overture (Adagio lamentoso & Allegro marziale), a symphonic nocturne (Andante molto expressivo), a light and quick scherzo (Presto), and a vibrant rondo-finale (Molto allegro). The “Hero” in the subtitle does not represent any human figure, but to art itself and its failing social status. The music is grand and highly emotional, containing rich folk elements that strive to prove the unity between an ethnical spirit and the meaning of selfhood. (2012) ca. 32'
